Hi Bob, it looks like you have found a lighting setup that allow you to control you reflections, particularly the specular ones, very nicely. Your PS skills are excellent. I particularly enjoy the text in the image, which explains the title.

Thanks . With Still Life it's so important to have controlled specular highlights because it creates a sense of depth. The stapler on the right has highlights on the top and sides. The reflected stapler on the left lacks highlights and looks 'flat'. Fortunately it has stamped writing which creates interest.
